The Asha Mentorship Programme that began five years ago, with a handful, has become a huge success with the kind support of many more enthusiastic professionals who have joined our programme each year. This noble initiative gives our college students from slums an opportunity to meet with professionals. Under their mentorship, students receive guidance and leadership on various aspect of their lives ranging from career, academics and personality development. This further motivates and gives these first-generation learners an exposure to a new world beyond their own.

Mentors already associated with this program shared their learning experiences through the mentorship programme and provided tips to the new mentors in this face to face meet. Students who have already benefited from this program shared their enriching encounter and insights from this association and hoped that new ones would benefit from it too.

Both Mentors and mentees enjoyed their time interacting and getting to know each other better over a cup of coffee and will continue to meet and nourish this new-found relationship.
